Groin hernia, umbilical hernia, incisional hernia
Dr. Wittig is specialized in the diagnosis and the treatment of hernias. He is familiar with all approved operation techniques, like minimal invasive operations (e.g. TEP, total extraperitoneal patch plastic), with or without mesh augmentation.
Minimal invasive surgical procedures of the abdominal cavity are appendicectomies, cholecystectomies (removal of the gallbladder), hernia repairs and removal of adhesions.
Using a very small (0,5-2cm) incision a camera and very thin instruments are brought into the abdomen and directly to the site of interest.
Lumps in the skin are mostly benign, fatty tumors (lipoma), sebaceous cysts, keloids, abscesses or fistulas.
They can be removed in local anaesthesia. The tissue is then examined in the laboratory to rule out malignancy.
Ingrown finger nails and toe nails lead to inflammation at the tip.
The ingrown part oft he nail has to be removed including the root to prevent recurrence.
Warts are tumors caused by viruses and need to be removed with a safety margin to prevent recurrence.
